Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2410577A2] A photovoltaic module (10) includes a substrate (12) having a plurality of individual serially connected solar cells (16) defined thereon. A bus tape (28) is applied along respective ones of the cells at generally opposite longitudinal ends of the substrate for collecting the charge generated by the plurality of solar cells. A conductive member (22) is interconnected between the bus tapes and is disposed beneath the bus tapes and in direct conductive contact with the respective cells. A junction box (24) is configured for delivering the generated charge to an external load or other component, with the conductive member connected to the junction box.
